Hatton Gallery

About

Newcastle University's Hatton Gallery has been at the heart of cultural life in the North East since the early 20th century. It can be found on Newcastle University’s historic campus, meaning it’s extremely accessible from the city centre.

The Hatton's collection comprises over 3,000 works, including painting, sculpture, prints, and drawing, with pieces from the 14th century to the present day. Key pieces include work by Francis Bacon, Richard Hamilton, Palma Giovane, Thomas Bewick amongst many others.

In October 2017 the gallery underwent a £3.8 million redevelopment to conserve the historic and architectural elements of the Grade II listed building while creating a modern exhibition space. The funding also enabled urgent conservation and better interpretation of the iconic Merz Barn Wall by Kurt Schwitters, one of the most significant figures in 20th century art.

The Hatton now stages a changing programme of modern and contemporary art exhibitions, and events including artist and curator talks. Every year the gallery plays host to several Newcastle University student exhibitions, where you can view the work of talented emerging artists. Entry is free, but a donation is welcome.
